The Bickering Genocides

The Canadian Mausoleum of Human Rights (as Scaramouche calls it) finally opened this weekend. Canadian officialdom, from the Queen and the Governor General down, is fully on board with the world's first atrocity resort, while everyone else is flouncing around in a big queeny huff. Joseph Brean's report for The National Post provides a useful update on the most recent additions to the ranks of the disaffected, among them: ~Hiba and Safa Choudhury, who feel the Palestinian Naqba has been ...

Highland Flung

After a couple of weeks overseas, I returned to The Hugh Hewitt Show for my weekly chit-chat with the maestro. Hugh was kind enough to mention my forthcoming appearance in Minneapolis, presented by the Center of the American Experiment live at Orchestra Hall on October 9th. You can get more info and book tickets here. The Daily Caller was more interested in what I had to say to Hugh about Obama and ISIS: "He wants to neutralize ISIS, not in terms of driving them from the map in the Middle East. ...

Topical Take

The Celtic Fringe of the Axis of Extinction

As a postscript to Scotland's failed secession campaign, here's my penultimate column from The Daily Telegraph of January 24th 2006, addressing the real problem with Scots nationalism - the shortage of Scots: Consider the following headline from The Scotsman the other week: "Teaching jobs in doubt as pensioners set to outnumber pupils by 2009." This was a story by Peter MacMahon, the paper's "Scottish Government Editor", and it begins thus: Scotland's demographic time bomb will explode in three ...

The Varispeed UK: All Exceptions and No Rule

It has taken a mere 17 years for Tony Blair's devolution proposals to bring Scotland to the brink of secession. Here's what I wrote at the time in The Sunday Telegraph on July 27th 1997...

Mrs Brown

The reborn Kingdom of Scotland may be on hold for a year or two, but here at SteynOnline we're having a Scottish-themed weekend. For our Saturday date movie, here's a highland fling of a most unusual character: The girl is Scotland's Queen; the boy is her loyal servant. Mrs Brown, the story of Queen Victoria and John Brown, was made in 1997, and by a quirk of timing was released a week after the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. But, even without a helping hand from fate, it seems designed to ...

Defend Free Speech!

"The Barbra Streisand Effect on Steroids"

On Wednesday afternoon, the climate activist group Penn Futures hosted a Twitter q-&-a with serial litigant and self-conferred Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann under the new hashtag #AskDrMann. How'd it go? Well... Most disastrous self-promoted hashtag I've seen in months: #AskDrMann. Twitchy has an entertaining round-up of the hashtag debacle - or, as one Tweeter calls it, "the Barbra Streisand Effect on Steroids". As readers well know from his Twitter feed and Facebook page, Dr Mann is a ...
